this is from the Mutual Aid Tompkins county FB page, is there anyone downtown who could collect and transport him?
Any wildlife rescuers downtown? There is a male duck sitting in the grass just off of the wood chip path at Titus Triangle Park. The duck’s back right food is tangled in fishing line with a large weight attached to it. The duck’s location is roughly across the street from 413 S Titus. Cornell Wildlife Swanson Center has been called. Is anyone available to bring the duck to them (covering the duck with a towel and putting it in a box). FYI, its mate is hanging out in the grass a few feet away. There is someone who can go back after 4:15 to help but, if someone is available sooner, that’d be ideal since the duck seems pretty uncomfortable. -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
